Disable Save As PDF Or XPS

Apr 16, 2013

Is there a way to disable 'Save as PDF or XPS' with the macro? I have tried disabling 'Save as' with the below VBA code but it does not disable 'Save as PDF or XPS'.

VB:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
If SaveAsUI Then
MsgBox "Save As is disabled", vbInformation
Cancel = True
End If
End Sub

Also I have a macro which saves the excel report in a PDF format with 'Save as PDF or XPS' utility. I would like to enable 'Save as PDF or XPS' when this macro is started and again disable 'Save as PDF or XPS' when this macro stops.

Disable Manual Save But Let VBA Save?

Oct 5, 2011

I need my spreadsheet to require that the user save it by clicking a macro button, and not the Save or SaveAs options in the file menu. I have found out how to disable saving entirely:

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
Cancel = True
If SaveAsUI Then SaveAsUI = False
End Sub

But this of course prevents my macro button from saving too!

Is there any way to allow VBA code to save the spreadsheet while simultaneously preventing the user from saving through the menu?

- Disable Save As And Define The Save Name

Nov 16, 2006

I have a file that I have created that the users will use as a master template to create data that I need. Once they have finished, I want the file to define what the filename should be when they click save.

At the same time, I want to disable "Save As..." as some users will just use that and then will use a file name that another macro (that I will use) won't recognise.

Disable Save As At Program Level?

Jan 29, 2014

I know the disabling of 'Save As' has been covered alot. I have successfully disabled both Save and Save As at the file level by the following:

Making file Read Only (which disables Save option)

Inserting the following VBA to make the Save As disabled.

[Code].....

The remaining problem I have is disabling the Save As prompting at the program exit level.

For example, if I have a read only file with Save As disabled and I choose the workbook (file) level close window (X) button, I am prompted to save the file but am not allowed to. This is the behavior I am looking for.

HOWEVER, if I choose to exit the file by selecting the program (Excel) level close (X) button, I am prompted to save a copy of the file and it allows me to do it.

I do not want my ~180 users to have any option to save the file once it is uploaded to a centralized server location. It is a large file and I do not need multiple versions floating around.

Is it also possible to disable the 'Save As' on close at the Program level??

Disable Save Except When Pressing Button Or Using Modifier?

Apr 15, 2014

I have a button in a template file, that when clicked, saves the file as a new file with file name based on data in certain cells.

I want to disable the ability to save the file with the Save icon or Ctrl-S, but the button still needs to be able to save it (the button is technically doing a Save As, so no problem there). But, I, as the administrator of the template, need to somehow be able to save updates to the template file. Can this be accomplished by coding Save to work when used with a secret key combination that only I know (I can put it in password-protected VB code)?

Then, as if that's not tricky enough, the trickier part is that once the file is saved as the new file (no longer the template) - re-enable the Save button and Ctrl-S so the user can then save it as many times as they want.

Disable Save & SaveAs Menu Items

Jul 13, 2006

Is there a code or a way to make it impossible to make permanent changes to a file without first saving it as something else? I have a master report that is done monthly.

I do not want anyone to be able to save any changes on the master report. How do I go about disabling save and the save as funtions in excel? I have a save as command button that I only want people to use.

Also is there a way to set up a print command button to print to any computers default printer? I have set up a print command button on my computer and it works fine on mine, but I have sent the file to another person and the button is not doing anything on their computer. I assume because we don't have the same computers.

Excel 2003 :: Unable To Allow Users To Make Changes To Workbook But Only Be Able To Do Save As Not Save

Dec 3, 2012

I have an expense report, which was originally done in Excel 2003. It still prompts users to open as read only however if they select no, they are not prompted for the password, and it has allowed them to save, so when the next person opens it, they have the previous person's report instead of the clean workbook. I have tried everything to put a password onto it. I know this is really basic stuff, but maybe I am missing a step? I want the end user to be able to make all the changes they want in read only mode and then do a save as, but if the select No when prompted "Open as Read-only?" they should have to put a password in.

Excel Save As Should Default File Save Type To XLSX Using VBA

Aug 21, 2012

What I am trying to do is that I have an excel file with macros and it is a read-only file. In order for the user to save, I want them to only be able to save as a .xlsx file as it disables all macros. If for whatever reason, the user wants to save the file as another .xlsm file, they should be allowed but before they save, a "are you sure you want to save as .xlsm?" message should pop up.

All the options in the save as box should still be available in case they want to save in that particular format. Just that the .xlsx should be the default.

I'm trying to make a macro check if a file has been saved (ever).

If the file hasnt been saved (if it runs from a new workbook) then I want it to pop up the save.as dialog, so that the user can choose the name and location of the file before the macro continues .

The macro itself is saved in personal.xlsx.

Save Back Up Copy Online At Each Save

Mar 27, 2008

I have a sheet which I would like to back up online every time it is saved.

I have a sub, OnlineFile(), which I have used many times without any problems, which creates a .BAT file to use ftp to upload files onto our server. As arguments, it takes the local file path that you want to upload (or download to), the name of the file as you would like it stored, the online file path, and whether you want to upload the file onto the server, or download it off the server.

It should be very easy to combine the two: what I tried was:


Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, cancel As Boolean)
ThisWorkbook.SaveCopyAs ThisWorkbook.Path & "" & "Rubbish.xls"
Call OnlineFile(ThisWorkbook.Path & "" & "Rubbish.xls", "Rubbish.xls", "wwwrootexcelfilesMasters", "Upload")
Kill ThisWorkbook.Path & "" & "Rubbish.xls"
End Sub

Every time I ran this, the file got uploaded correctly, but Excel had a series of problems. Often the code ran fine the first time it was run, but crashed the second time round.

After a fair bit of troubleshooting, I found that the problem came about when the file was trying to save itself - i.e. after the end of the sub. If you pause any macros from running, it still saved fine, but when the code ran, it found errors, froze or closed excel.

My thought at this point was that the code was fragmented or something. I made a new sheet, and retyped just the relevant bits of code (i.e. the BeforeSave sub, the OnlineFile sub and created the form called by OnlineFile). The problem persisted.

I've come up with a workaround for this now (which uses the same OnlineFile sub & form, and works fine), but it's driving me crazy - why does this cause excel to die? Particularly on the second time through? The code seems far too simple to cause such problems - is there a bug in Excel perhaps (I'm using Excel 2000 on Windows XP).

VBA (Save As) No Error But File Does Not Save

Oct 10, 2011

I have written the following simple macro to import some data into a worksheet and then prompt the user to save the file in Excel 2003 format (the system to which we will upload this data does not accept formats later than 2003). The template is in "*.xlsm" format.

The code executes without error, but when the user hits the "Save" button in the "Save As" dialog box, nothing happens. The "Save As" box closes, but no file is saved.

Code:
Private Sub cmdImportData_Click()
Dim sFName As String
'On Error Resume Next
PrepData
CopyData
FormatColumns
'prompt the user to save the file in "*.xls" format
sFName = Application.GetSaveAsFilename("upload", "Excel files (*.xls), *.xls")
End Sub
